Divorce is a life-changing and challenging experience for anyone. But, for a stay-at-home mom, it can be frustrating since you depend on your spouse’s income for support. Therefore, before filing for divorce, it’s vital to plan to be prepared financially and emotionally.
First, begin by obtaining all your financial records from credit card statements, tax returns to mortgage information, and home closing documents.
Second, meet with your divorce lawyer to discuss your options. For instance, you may want alimony, but the rules surrounding this vary by state and only an attorney can help you understand how it works.
